Centre Forward Support

Playing into a striker and supporting

Two teams playing in an area with two end zones.

One striker for each team plays in the end zone. Strikers have two touches only.

Teams score by passing into their striker and supporting, then shooting into one of the mini goals once they have linked play and received possession from the striker in the end zone.

Players can only enter the end zone once the ball has been played into it.
